For the dignified life of the youth, a campaign has been started under the joint auspices of Sanvada and Yuvnadade-Karnataka that the Youth Commission should be implemented.
In this regard, Yuva Munnade, Karnataka has issued a press release saying, “The campaign for the implementation of Yuvajana Aayog once again is underway to ensure the rights and duties of the constitution and the participation of young boys and girls in order to build an exploitation-free youth society so that their dignity is not compromised and their rights are not violated.” .
On 27/09/2023 as part of the campaign, the youth visited Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s office and met Private Secretary Dr. Venkateshiah, Finance and Economic Principal Secretary KL Aseekh, Principal Secretary to Government Vandita Sharma, Youth Empowerment and Sports Minister B. Nagendra, Legislative Assembly Speaker UT Khader, Vidhan Parishad Chairman Basavaraja Horatti, Public Works Minister Satish Jarakiholi, Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Department Minister Priyank Kharge and demanded the implementation of the Youth Commission.
The current ruling Congress party, citing the demand of dialogue, youth leadership and many youth organisations, had claimed in its manifesto to set up a youth commission, provide youth unemployment fund allowance and welfare of workers.
According to the announcement, it has submitted petitions for the implementation of the ‘Youth Commission’.
Neela Somasekar (Bangalore), Iramma (Bangalore), Madhankumar (Chitradurga), Arpita (Bangalore), Krithik (Bangalore) and many others participated in this campaign.
What is the Youth Commission?
The aim of the Youth Commission is to ensure the protection of the rights of the youth and to formulate and implement youth education and socialisation programmes.
How is the commission established?
If the State Youth Commission is to be established, the government should draft the “Youth Commission Act” and present it in both houses. A two-thirds majority in both the Vidhan Sabha and Vidhan Parishad, and signed by the Governor, becomes an Act. Then appropriate rules can be formulated and implemented.
